Ihad my computer mem wiped out because of virus,no fix it disc how to restore it to origunal factory settings

Reset the parameters you stated above yourself. No need for a Restoration Disk, or a Full Installation disk.

(Full Installation disk = New genuine copy of Windows.
{ Note* Microsoft makes one Master disk. From this all genuine copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

A) Can't rip CD's or movies? I suggest the free Infra Recorder.

Home page;


B) Screen is too big?
Go to eMachines Support, your desktop computer model number, and Drivers. Download AND install the VGA drivers.

Then reset the Screen Resolution, to the native resolution of the monitor, in Display Properties.

[ Display Properties:
Windows XP;
1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen

2) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the fly-out list

To change Screen Resolution:
3) Left-click on the Settings tab

4) Go down to the middle of the small window to -
Screen resolution

5) Drag the Slider to the pixel ratio you need.
(Left-click on Slider, hold the left mouse button down, slide the mouse in the direction you want the Slider to go )

6) On Color quality to the right;
Make sure it is set at - Highest (32 bit)

If it isn't;
Left-click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the Color quality box.
Left-click on Highest (32 bit)
Left-click on Apply at the bottom right
Then left-click on OK at the bottom left

Find your monitor on the internet, if it did not come with your eMachines. See what the native resolution is.
Also, monitors come with an installation disk, which also has the drivers on it.

C) Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > To the left under the heading - See Also, click on - Fonts.
Change the font size (If needed after changing Screen resolution)

D) Click on Internet Explorer
Go to your browser home page, (Yahoo, Firefox, etc), and set it up again.

E) Go to Microsoft Support, and download the new Windows Media Player,

[ Click on Windows Media > Downloads and Updates > Get Windows Media Player,

IF memory serves Gateway bought out eMachines, then Acer bought out Gateway, and eMachines.
I have heard it is tough, and/or expensive to obtain a Restoration Disk, plus a lengthy wait.

Otherwise it is buy a new genuine copy of Windows, install it, and when asked save the old files.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do I format a CD-R in windows xp

Unless your using a program you don't really format a CD-R, sometimes you erase a CD-RW but if your looking to put data on a disk you insert your blank disk and then you can go to then disk and put files to be copied on the disk, Then you run the windows write to disk wizard. it is located under FIle and says " Write these files to CD " You can also burn music with windows media player by selecting the copy to CD or Media device or by selecting the Burn tab on the top of the media player on newer versions of windows media player.

Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

What does no media player mean!


With every operating system you usually have a media player to play music. No media player means that either you do not have a media player that may play songs or you have a corrupted one.

Note - Media player is a Microsoft's product. You may have Winamp, Realplayer but not Windows Media Player.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

I need activation codes for windows media plyer...

Windows 10 Products Key
As far as I know, you can buy it from the authorized vendor online . You can count on them 100% as this site is the partner vendor of Microsoft. This is the biggest competitive point.

Real Player AND Windows Media Player - do I need BOTH of these?

Yes Min. requirement is Windows XP,  IE7 is not a requirement, check you have sufficent memory both RAM (atleast 128 MB)and Hard Disk Space(Min. 2 GB free should be there.), Hope you have a genuine copy of windows a must for Windows media player and not mandaotry for Real Player. Get the Framework 1.1 and 2.0 and 3.0 for windows xp if you dont have already. And check your sound card but not mandatory.

How do I fix a drm problem in windows media player 11

DRM, which specifies whether tracks copied from CDs in Windows Media Audio (WMA) format are protected files. A license, which helps protect the copyrights of artists by preventing unauthorized distribution, is required to play protected files.
If you're trying to play your copy-protected files on a new computer, you can migrate your protected music from one computer to another by doing the following:
Windows Media Player 7.1 or later
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
Windows Media Player 7
Download the Personal License Update Wizard for Windows Media Player ( follow the instructions.
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
A license can be migrated ten times. After this limit is reached, you will receive an error when you try to migrate the license again (for more information, see the Windows Media Player FAQ). When this occurs, you will need to rip the file from the CD again.
note.gif Note If you still have the CD in your possession, you can rip the tracks from the CD again, but with copy protection turned off.
